â€śTell my friends Iâ€™m not a wimp!â€ť whispered a dying Alan D. Wilma into the phone to one of his friends. Then Al turned in his hospital bed and managed a smile at his wife, Saundra, and their daughter, Genevieve.
Even as Al lay dying at Holy Family Hospital in Spokane, he did not lose his courage or his wry sense of humor. Alan was a most unusual man. He was intuitive, immensely intelligent and imaginative. All who truly knew him enjoyed his wit and ironic sense of humor.
